including a bad news regading Hernán Salinas. The previous day had, the 44 year old tango singer, died due to a lungs illness.
A great a lost for the Tango world and for those who had the possibility of sharing moments with to him.

Goodbye to a Great Singer. Clarín, 22th Nov. 2003
Hernán Salinas, Argentine tango singer of the school
of Carlos Gardel, and
one of the most important voices of Argentine tango. His voice of baritone,
sometimes sensual, other dramatic, demonstrates his aptitude to adapt to
varied forms of sung expressions. To this natural feature, he adds a great
dose of talent, study and dedication that allows him to include different
facets that tango offers.
In a type of music that require certain maturity , Salinas recorded
his first simple as soloist when he was just 20 years old.
He obtained a fast recognition from the public like a great orchestras
singer . Thus it was that the maestro Astor
Piazzolla invited him in 1987 to participate in the European opening
of his Opera Tango " Maria of Buenos Aires ".
